pastels colours / pastelne boje

My fashion illustration/ moja modna ilustracija
Pastel hair, pastel make up, pastel clothes, pastel everything...the pastels colours are in again. What do you think about them? What is your pastel colour of choice? Which one was your favourite when you were a child? I think mine was pink, a predictable choice ...that is after all what most girls say when you asked them about their favourite colours. I find that there is something relaxing in the pastel colours. In addition, there is a lot of potential for subtle and elegant looks to be found in pastel colours. Spring is making me feel both quite hyperactive and really tired this year, so the relaxation offered by the gentle shades is more than welcome.  

Pastelna kosa, pastelna šminka, pastelna odjeća...ponovo su popularne pastelne boje. Što mislite o njima? Koja je vaša najdraža pastelna boja? Koja vam je bila najdraža kad ste bili dijete? Mislim da je moja bila roza, predvidljiv izbor jer to je ipak što većina djevojčica kaže kad ih se pita za omiljenu boju. Mislim da ima nešto relaksirajuće u pastelnim nijansama, a imaju i puno potencijala kod postizanja suptilnog i elegantnog izgleda. Proljeće me ove godine čini i prilično hiperaktivnom i jako umornom u isto vrijeme, tako da je dobrodošla relaksacija koju nude nježnije boje.


  1. So pretty!! I love pastels. My favourite colour has always been blue, even in pastel shades. I hated pink, haha. Spring has made me tired yet energized. The weather has been up and down, so I hope it will steady itself out here soon!! Have a sweet day doll xx

  2. Mint, baby roza i bez nijanse su mi najdraze :)

  3. I mene ovo proljeće nekako umara, joj joj :) Meni lijepo izgledaju sve pastelne nijanse iako ih baš nećeš vidjeti na meni jer sam više pobornik žarkih boja, ali ih jako volim vidjeti na drugima.

  4. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)
    Have a successful day!

  5. Volim pastelne, najomiljene su mi nježno roza i mint.

  6. I think mine is pink too :p Love the shades of this illustration!

  7. Divan crtež :) Ja obožavam pastelne boje, posebno kad su u pitanju žuta i mint zelena...

  8. very pretty (muy bonito)...

  9. Anche a me piacciono molto i colori pastello, però non ricordo quale fosse il mio preferito da piccola!

  10. I really wanted to try pink hair this summer, my boyfriend looked at me like I'm crazy...I have plenty of time to decide :-)

  11. Sei bravissima, complimenti!
    Adoro tutti i colori pastello, difficile sceglierne uno. Ultimamente sono in fissa con il giallo pastello
    un bacio

    1. grazie...anch'io adoro il giallo pastelo:)

  12. I love pastel pink color

  13. Yay za pastelne boje! Moram da sebi jos kupim koju odjecu u plavoj, rozoj boji.. :)

  14. When I was a teenager I was really mad about pink, I wanted everything what I have to be pink. It was real madness and I was looking like a pink lollipop. Those times are so far away now, and I would prefer black and white to pink without a shadow of doubt. At the same time, I love your painting, it looks so original, I also agree that elegance and royal chic can be definitely found in pastel colours and soft shades too!

  15. I think you know that I'm in general a huge lover of colours. And althoug I think I prefer bright colours a bit more than pastel colours I love this colour palette also. My favourite colours from the pastels are for sure pink and pale blue, and I think I love pink also when I was a child. And a beautiful drawing again, I like it really much!

My last post was about beautiful historical town Mostar, but today I want to show you other amazing cities in the region of Herzegovina. You guys know how much I treasure Mostar and how important it is to me. Mostar is the largest and best known city in Herzegovina, the cultural and administrative centre of this region you might say. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that other cities don't deserve to be on your tourist radar as well. Honestly, one of the things that amazes me about Herzegovina is the diversity of its cities. Today I'll present three lovely cities to you: Ljubuški, Čapljina and Široki Brijeg. This is by no means a complete list. Another thing worth pointing out is that a lot of places  that get called cities, but in reality there are not that many cities in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina (only around 20). Popular tourist destinations such as Blagaj and Međugorje are often called cities while in fact they do not have a status of a city. 
As the name of …


Today I will take you on a virtual walk through Mostar city, more specifically through the old part of the town. Whether you're a history lover or not, the historical part of Mostar city will surely impress you. There is a reason why this place is so popular. It's an utterly beautiful area and it's extremely photogenic. I'm very excited I'll be sharing it with you today. Moreover, I'm going to give you some outfit tips for sightseeing the old bridge and the old city. As some of you know, I'm currently based in Mostar. One the benefits of being Mostar based is that the gorgeous historical centre is always available to me (Click here to see my most recent blog post shot at old bridge in Mostar) and that means I can give you good insider tips too.
These photographs were all taken last Sunday when we decided to go for a walk through the old city after mass. We walked from the Saint Peter and Paul church and monastery to the old bridge, through the old town and…


Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …
